Talent pipelining simply isn’t what it was……..

I first heard the term Talent-Pipelining in 2007 when I was a recruiter at a mid-size global software company.  It was quite straightforward – find a person on LinkedIn, try and make contact, screenshot their profile and add it to the ATS under a given generic role such as “Account Managers” and if they sent you a CV replace the screenshot with the CV.  If you then had a similar role, that was the first place you looked – but only if you remembered !
